Following my previous report about the bike that hit a mountain lion at Sturgis, it seems that these beasts are starting to become something of a problem!

California resident Tiffany Porter says she nearly hit a mountain lion with her dirt bike, which then chased her on her KX 100. Fortunately, she was able to escape the pursuing beast.

"It blended right into the brush," Porter said

Two California Department of Fish and Game wardens were dispatched to the area, but couldn't find any sign of the cat.

One of the sources I found that reported this made me laugh - according to the rag in question, she "gunned her powerful motorcycle and escaped".

A KX100? Powerful?
